The new online store, which goes live today (28 October) sells meal kits, restaurant-blend curry powders, ready-to-drink cocktails, and Hoppers’ own-brew beers.
Meal kits include paneer kothu, with banana chips; vegetable rolls; paneer kothu; tempered yoghurt; and choco-coco biskut puddings; and kalupol chicken with mutton rolls; roast kalupol chicken; pol rotis; seeni sambol; lunu miris; carrot and coriander sambol; and choco-coco biskut puddings.
Drinks available from the store include Hoppers’ own Toddy Ale brewed in collaboration with Salt Brewery, an unpasteurised Sri Lankan pale ale with coconut. Two cocktails are also be on offer – a White Ruby Punch made with Ceylon Arrack, white port, kumquat, and jasmine tea, alongside the Arrack Attack made with Ceylon arrack, house ginger beer and coriander seeds.
Delivery is nationwide with a minimum order value of £30.
“Developing a retail presence has always been in the pipeline, but the last few months really showed us the demand for it, pushing us to bring our products to market,” says Hoppers Director Karan Gokani.
“Just like Hoppers was inspired by the toddy shops and street food stalls in Sri Lanka and South India, Cash & Kari emulates the small family-run shops in towns and cities across the region – selling their own blend of spices, batters, snacks and homemade drinks.
"We are very excited to bring a taste of Hoppers into homes across the country, at a time when not everyone can enjoy the pleasure of dining out.”
